Eating raw vegan is not only a yummy and delicious lifestyle. Another added benefit relates to body odor. I cannot go back. Raw vegan food feels so amazing and makes us smell so good!

May we not allow other people to hinder our projects #motivation responsibility and integrity

Two personal stories and two lessons. First, the opinions of others are a projection of their beliefs and personal life experiences. Second, making the judgements of others part of our thinking can be detrimental to our life. It is our responsibility to act according to our intuition and personal integrity. We have our own life to live, not the life of others.

My dear blender burnt in a house fire. I loved smoothies so much, yet there is a good thing is that. I now create amazing and beautiful delicious raw vegan salads that I add on my Instagram to inspire you, notably the abundance salad, the contrasts salad and the black and white salad.

Finding the good thing in every situation is an exercise I love doing with my children.

Another good reason to #meditate or cleaning old memories from our body #phenix

Another good reason to #meditate or cleaning old memories from our body #phenix

The cells of our beautiful body store memories of past traumas and buried emotions. Such a concept is brought again so many times in the books I read. Yesterday as I was reading the book by Doctor Habib Sadeghi The clarity cleanse, it came again. How can we then get free? How can we fly from old memories and rise like a phenix?

Again, meditation is a very useful tool for recovery. Meditation helps our body to get rid of buried negative emotions, like shame and deep grief. I find it so helpful to sit with myself for 15 minutes and listen to a guided meditation. I feel my body getting cleaner. For the first time, I can really feel my body and my emotions, without trying to escape from them. By seeing past trauma and fears in the eyes, I can let go of them, release them, feel clean.

There is another amazing video of Teal Swan about addictions called “How to Overcome Addiction – Teal Swan“. Again, meditation is presented as one tool to help us recover from addictions. They seem to me like a way of escaping old and painful stuff our body stored but does not need anymore.

Book review Altruism by Matthieu Ricard #reading

Book review Altruism by Matthieu Ricard #reading

The book Altruism by Matthieu Ricard is perfect for the 21st century. I love the idea of associating kindness and compassion to strength. Very well documented, Altruism proves that it is the way of the future on the planet.

Collaboration is much modern than competition. This idea has been explained by Chantal Revault d’Allonnes in the interview I did of her (in French) about her book on the end of patriarchy.

Collaboration being the trend of the new era also reminds me of Blue ocean strategy, as opposed to the red blood ocean of competition.

What is #home? Uprooted children or open-minded human beings?

What is #home? Uprooted children or open-minded human beings?

As I was enjoying following the great Kate Magic on Instagram (she went to Bali last winter), I saw she was happy to be home in the UK after a beautiful travel experience in Indonesia.

Personally I wonder if I can call somewhere “home”. However what I know for sure is that I feel at home very rapidly when I am somewhere new. As some people accuse me of uprooting my children by moving abroad, I contemplate how open-mindedness is an underestimated quality. Having the skill to adjust and adapt is worth it. Choosing self-sacrifice to make sure our kids are raised in the same place during their entire childhood does not feel right. Belonging and feeling secure relate to knowing we are loved and safe. Whenever we go, I create the best loving environment I can for my children. What is your experience? Did you move abroad when you were a child?

 

There is nothing wrong with us and we are perfect just as we are #human

There is nothing wrong with us and we are perfect just as we are #human

There is nothing wrong with us, we do not have to change because we are perfectly imperfect. May we not color our life the way other people would like us to because if would make them more comfortable. If we do not fit, if we are weird, so be it. May we move forward, even if people deny our reality. May we believe in ourselves instead of blaming us for not being good enough.

People want to convince us there is something wrong with us because it is easier to manipulate someone with a low self-esteem. My friend, we are responsible for our life 100%. May we take control of it, may we fly away from mediocrity, may we own who we are today and who we are becoming.

Love,

Claire
